The amount the market price must move for the price to move up or down one tick in value. If the tick size is one for a contract, then one unit of price movement will change the contract’s value by one. Many markets have fractional tick sizes. For example, a tick size of 0.01 means that a movement of 0.01 in the price would change the profit or loss by one tick.« Back to Glossary Index
